Smith of Wootton Major Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Smith of Wootton Major

The cook must prepare the traditional Great Cake for the village children's party, unbeknownst to him the star amongst the silver trinkets bestows a special gift on the one who finds it. The lad grows up to be the finest of iron smiths, but prone to disappear, wandering abroad in parts unknown - a land of strange magic, a privilege and gift of the few. A fable, a myth, and a parable at the edge of the worlds of mortal man and faery, it should be more widely known.
